Enjoy a full-day trip from Hanoi and explore the famed Perfume Pagoda (Chùa Hương) of Vietnam, a vast complex of Buddhist temples and shrines built into the limestone mountains of Huong Tich mountains, and of the country's most important religious sites.
What to Expect
Begin the day at your hotel in the old quarter of Hanoi, and enjoy a relaxing 2-hour road trip to the Chùa Hương, or the Perfume Pagoda, a vast complex of Buddhist temples and shrines built into the limestone Huong Tich mountains.
Once you've arrived at the Perfume Pagoda, start your day off with a relaxing and romantic row-boat trip to visit some of the fascinating in-land sights dotting the Thien Tru harbor. Once you've explored some of the incredible temples and shrines of the Thien Tru pagoda, work up a bit of a sweat as you climb to the ancient Huong Tich cave on the top of the mountain.
Reward yourself with a leisurely lunch at a local restaurant at the core of the mountain, and then head over to the Heaven Kitchen pagoda in the afternoon to learn about the ancient Buddhist architecture of Le Dynasty, returning back to the city of Hanoi at about 18:00.
